Welcome to the new look
Wave Without A Shore

It’s a work in progress but everything should work now


Tested clean.

The follow-up to the last colonoscopy (3 in the last 365 days, not to mention abdominal surgery) reports the latest biopsy is clear. No problem. Jane and I are, yes, happy! I've been so often in that clinic this year I'm about to demand a brass plaque.Not to mention...

Doing pretty well—repaired the instant hot water in the kitchen..

Between us, Jane and I can lift, plumb, kneel, shove, and whatnot----and we replaced the kitchen water heater. Which is pretty good for a new hip and coming off chemo. We're being thankful this year for being here in one piece and making progress. Which in 2020, is a...

Jane’s Doing Fine

Mostly incision pain. She's moving about pretty well, but relying on the walker to avoid thoughtless twists and other bodily moves that could tweak abused muscle. The only muscle incision is vertical, but there is 'retraction', which is not a gentle process. She's...

We can’t do anything the simple way…

On her way to the car, Jane hit the door open button for the garage. In the dark of 6am in Spokane winter. She settled in (I'd been warming the car.) and I hit the door open button on the car visor and backed out. Hit the garage door. It IS a both open and close...

Well, adventures weren’t over…

On a snowy night at 3 am, Jane had gut pain severe enough I took her to a fancy clinic, which called an ambulance to get her to the hospital for removal of her gall bladder, which had never given any prior trouble. That was a week ago. Today she gets her right hip...

This last year….

Ill in January, I bounced through a series of medical appointments which. thanks to one doc and two NP's, bounced me to a colonoscopy. which found, yes, cancer. I was in surgery within two weeks, on chemo the week after that, and am glad to report I finished chemo in...

Jane & I won the Prometheus Award for Alliance Rising

It's a very nice award. It recognizes a book that promotes individual freedom or the right to 'vote with one's feet' when it comes to choosing your allies and your government. Intelligence and foresight matter. Which is something AR is about.

Under the weather last 2 weeks, doing better.

Not the virus. Just crud. But ok. We're saying a reluctant goodbye to Scott---he's been with us a long time, part of the 'family', he and Andrea. But construction jobs have to end, and he has to move on to a shower install elsewhere. He'll pop back in to help us with...

We are officially into the cleanup phase of house remodel…

And with Scott's help---we managed to get the weight of the marine tank canopy reduced by about 90% which means easy off-on. Feeding is still an adventure---I have to get a short ladder and climb up to drop food in, but that's not too bad. OTOH, FINITY made the leap...
